Brunch is served every Sunday at the Elks Club

Feb. 19 was the 100-day wedding “anniversary” of retired Marine Col. Mike Adams and wife Jan.
Mike is the CEO of the Hobart Chamber of Commerce. I asked Mike for a report on his 100 days. He said “She has made me a better man and grandfather.” This darling couple freely tells everyone that they each married their best friend!
If you have ever had lunch or supper at the Elks Club in Hobart, you know what good food they serve.
They have renamed the dining room “The BISTRO Eleven-Fifty-Two Room.” Each Sunday of every month the Elks will be serving brunch — with all your favorites — from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The cost will be $10 for adults and $7 for children under age 12.
Every third Friday of the month they will serve all-you-can-eat white fish, smelt or shrimp, plus the salad bar. The cost is $12 for adults and $7 for children under 12.
Every fourth Saturday they will have an all-you-can-eat chicken and spaghetti buffet. The cost is $10 for adults and $7 for children under 12 years.
All of these meals are available for carryout.
Elks members receive a $1 discount off each meal they purchase.
Mark your calendar! Hobart’s famous Mama Mia Spaghetti Supper/Silent Auction will be held from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 23. The event is held at the St. Bridget Church Community Center at 2nd and Center Street. The cost is $8 for adults and $5 for children.
Recently Mayor Brian Snedecor had his Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast.
The sponsors were the Hobart Kiwanis Club and Augustana Lutheran Church. The Wolffgang Singers from Hobart High School sang several hymns.
The Rev. Sam Abott from South Lake Worship Center gave the prayer for the city. The Rev. Carlos Mendoza from Tabernaculo de Adoration y Restauracion gave the Old Testament readings. Chaplain Combs, the Hobart Fire Department, the pastor from Jubilee Worship Center and the Rev. Charles Strietlemeier gave readings from the New Testament.
The breakfast was prepared and served by members of the Augustana Lutheran Church. As always it was their famous egg, cheese and vegetable casserole served along with fresh fruit, juice, coffee and sweet rolls.
Happy 15th birthday to Bill Sikora. This is remarkable in that Bill and his wife Susan are parents to four children and 10 grandchildren.
The Sikoras and I share two of these grandchildren/great-grandchildren. They are Will (3 years old) and Matt (8 months).
If you haven’t guessed by now, Bill is a leap-year baby. He has lived 56 years and insists on a party each year.
Each year the First Methodist Church of Hobart has a Lenten service prior to Easter.
The service is called “Twenty Minutes with God.” As stated in the title, the service is a short 20 minutes. The service starts at 5 minutes after noon, every Monday beginning on Feb. 27.
Service leaders are as follows: the Rev. Cindy Reynolds, the district director of the First Methodist Church, Feb. 27; Father Dominic Bertino, pastor of St. Bridget Catholic Church, March 5; the Rev. Charles Striehelmeier, pastor of Augustana Lutheran Church, March 12; Chaplain Jim Stoel from St. Mary Medical Center, March 19; and the Rev. Ray Richardson from the First Nazarene Church of Hobart, March 26.
Each service starts with a short prayer, a hymn and short Bible reading followed by a hymn. After the service everyone is invited to a complementary soup/dessert and coffee lunch. The service is held at the First United Methodist Church at 4th and Main streets.
